No statistic I can find numbers on but all departments I know people in or, know of or work with do allow or issue rifles and the largest departments in my area require they be carried at all time in the vehicle. Some of them are select fire as well.

Yes many departments issue rifles or allow the carry of rifles. Because your department does not is not the deciding factor on others that do. And whats funny is I am pretty sure your department uses rifles whether your patrol officers have them or not.....
